Given your account is non-admin, you need a configuration which reads
input from and writes output to your home directory. So:
- "sudo updmap-sys -H", which read from and writes to /usr/local/
texlive/, is out.
- "sudo updmap-sys", which reads from ~/Library/texmf/ and
~/.texlive<year>/ and writes to /usr/local/texlive/, is out.
- updmap, which reads from ~/Library/texmf/ and ~/.texlive<year>/ and
writes to ~/.texlive<year>/, gets in.
(Pete, please correct me if I'm wrong.)
So what I think you need is:
- Put lucida.map in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/lucida/.
- Run "updmap --enable Map lucida.map".

That said, I'm a bit surprised by your description: I would have
thought customizing a software (as, in this case, adding support for
the Lucida fonts) is precisely the thing you would do in the admin
account, before returning to the non-admin account for daily work.
Unless, of course, you want first to experiment and test things in
your non-admin account, before installing them system-wide.
